Both the sprint and olympic swims are point-to-point in the Ohio River with the sprint course being so fast with the downstream that you're set up for a swim PR. See the swim map for distinguishing buoys to follow and be sure to listen to race staff instructions at the swim start should there be any changes to course design on race morning.
The swim will be conducted in a time-trial fashion. Race numbers are assigned by estimated swim time. Return to Racing Guidelines will further detail the gap between each racer start. We will ask everyone to social distance while lined up to start. Course buoys are placed to help racers to stay on course. To assist you in determining your swim time, follow this pace chart provided by US Masters Swimming.
There will be no moving up in swim order on race day. The race order is pre-assigned and you may move back in the order if you so choose.
